Default Recommendations for a entry level handheld HAM

Hey guys, I know that you can spend as much as you wish on HAM radio's but I was wondering if you guys could recommend a simple handheld that I could keep on hand for monitoring/broadcasting (once I get my license).

I have been looking at some of the compact Yaesu series and was wondering whats the minimum you would recommend? I am thinking of something that would easily move from vehicle to vehicle, even take camping etc.
